Land Rover management decided to abandon an idea of the emergence of a serial extreme version of Discovery, which is designed for heavy off-road.
Autocar writes that the prototype of a similar vehicle from the Special Vehicles Operations division was shown in the autumn of 2017 in Frankfurt. For Land Rover Discovery SVX were prepared a long-stroke shock absorber, an air suspension that has increased ground clearance, 20-inch aluminum wheels, and Goodyear Wrangler 275/55 off-road tires. Another Discovery SVX is equipped with a proprietary roll management system Active Roll Control with Terrain Response 2 assistance system when driving off-road.
We add that the all-terrain vehicle is the first fifth-generation Discovery machine, which has an 8-cylinder engine.
